Jason Bateman has revealed that the Arrested Development script is more than "halfway" finished.
Bateman told IGN: "We hope that there is enough people out there who would want to see it that Fox Searchlight could get its money back from financing it."
"Mitchell Hurwitz is halfway through writing the script now, and once he's done and if he's happy with it, we'll start to schedule it and then shoot it. And then be done."
"It will be a small film. It will be simple. We'll shoot it in probably six weeks. It will get a little release. It is not being done at big Fox, it is being done at Fox Searchlight. It's going to be a small effort."
